"When we are faced with a very difficult situation we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge and grow."
Sometimes, I struggle to comprehend how certain people can be so naturally good at putting others down to make themselves feel better or more significant in some way. It would seem our world is full of people who judge, gossip, & vilify using methods like the cruel whip of a malignant tongue, piercing looks of disdain, or downright passive-aggressive sabotage. What is most especially painful is when this happens within families and between friends. As a very sensitive empath on a warrior’s path of mindfulness towards love, compassion, & harmonious communication with All My Relations, there are times when it simply breaks my heart. And yet, the journey continues.
By now, I've learned not to be so naive as to seek & wait for the approval & support of all my family & peers. Perhaps just a select, deserving few. The truth is, even if my dreams & visions are for the common good, they can only successfully manifest on a foundation of trust, integrity, patience & commitment. And in order to create that quality of steadfastness, one must first have the courage to cultivate the authentic self and live with fierce passion & purpose no matter how difficult the circumstances. Just like a flower with pure longing for life finds its way out of the dark comfort of the seed and into the light, so too must we find the courage to overcome the obstacles on our path towards greatness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them. They are there, and if the seed is to become the flower we must go through them. Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be." - Osho ☀️🌦🌱🌻🐝🙏🏽 #mitakuyeoyasin
